Help needed
 
I was going on a ride the other day and I changed my oil before hand, I noticed in my oil I could see metal particles not shavings. Not Sure if I should be worried or not. This is my first quad 2010 yfz450r, and I would like to have it as long as possible. Any advice is welcome

Most likely metallic “dust” from your clutch plates.

Check oil filter for larger “chunks”

Oil will shimmer and be gray. You'll get used to it. You'll know when something is wrong

The harder you ride it specially slipping the clutch on rock crawling situations the more often you gotta drain and fill the engine oil. Every other change new oil filter and new o rings. Tusk o ring kit work good.

Thanks, I was just a little concerned. I checked the filter when I seen that but no chunks or shaving.
